Telecommunications regulatory reform will continue to feature into 2012 as the Telecommunications Consumer Protection (TCP) Code will see the power of pricing and usage monitoring become easier for consumers, with service providers possibly being overseen by the regulators. The other major feature will be the new regulations governing the transition period between now and the arrival of the NBN. Subsequently other smaller and niche market operators will look for opportunities to gain a greater market share of the telecommunications revenue streams to shore up their returns.
The second-tier market is making gains in broadband and they are gearing up for IPTV which will then be bundled into their other product offerings. Although the bundled market often sees overall revenues fall but it generally maintains a higher ARPU. Also in 2012 further consolidation is expected.
While the fixed-voice market revenue declines in the second-tier market so too are mobile and broadband revenues. Falling revenue reflects increased bundle value as well as consumers moving away from fixed-voice services, but it may also be a symptom of increased reliance on VoIP-based and naked DSL platforms in the second-tier market. Nevertheless, overall revenues in second-tier mobile services and data services (including internet access) continue to show growth.
